Sometimes it can feel challenging to see the big picture when we are in psychic pain or triggered emotionally. We wonder why frustrating, disappointing, or frightening events arise in our lives. Often we experience these things as happening to us rather than through us or even for us.
Animals who come into our lives arrive with wisdom to share and lessons to teach us. It is true of the warm and cuddly companions we live with and those we avoid. Often the creatures we fear or reject offer a path to healing and transformation.
Sharks are one of the animals onto which we project our fear and darkness. Shark “feeding frenzies” are mild compared to some human behavior. Sharks invite us to look within and explore the parts of ourselves that we often disown.
Thoughts, feelings, and actions all impact what we create in our world. The energy we hold in our bodies also affects what we manifest in our physical surroundings. I often write about the healing power of love. While love is a powerful healing force, I did not realize until recently that love has a companion that can propel it forward and bring about transformation – respect.
Last week I attended a memorial service honoring Thich Nhat Hanh, who has left his physical body. While I never met him personally, I came to know him through stories related to me. In addition to his love and compassion, what stood out for me was his understanding of human frailty. It was a beautiful service, and I was engulfed in love.
I spent Earth Day talking with the animals. Usually, when I communicate about a particular topic, there are noticeable differences in the responses I receive from individual beings. When it comes to our current world experience, all of nature is on the same leaf and relaying a consistent message. Healing Corona is about more than just curing a virus and it can only be healed with love.
